Radeon X1800 Series Is there a Driver for Suse 10.0 ?


I am new to Linux, I have installed it on my new PC but found out that I can not configure the graphic card for two TFT's. ( they always show the same ). I've tried to google for information but I've only found some rumors that ATI will release a suitable driver soon.

So my question: Is there a driver or not ?.
Could it be that I have to look elsewhere, i.e. not on ATI's homepage ?

thx, Bingo

Have you searched here? I seem to recall several threads relating to dual monitors, ATI, etc.

Smile ATI drivers are crap

ATI support in linux is just rubbish, there are ways to perciviere and get it working but you'll have a lot more joy if you get an NVIDIA card

Funny--I've heard the opposite
Also, have you checked the HCL (here on LQ)?
